School is back in session and with it, afterschool programs are underway here at Neu-Life. Each year as the days become shorter, we compile our favorite summer moments from to brighten your day. This year more than ever, our hearts are full as we reflect on challenges faced and the amazing resilience of our community.
This year's summer program challenged us all beyond our imagination, and we're deeply grateful of the dedication and grit shown by our Neu-Life staff.
Check out these program highlights. They made us smile and believe in the work that we do for youth in Lindsay Heights - we hope they do the same for you !
Here are just a few of the exciting things Neulife kids will get to did over the summer, suppored by art sales:
Neu-Life continues to serve our families and youth remotely. Since the statewide closure of all K-12 schools on March 13th, Neu-Life has been innovative and resourceful in protecting the health and safety of families while continuing to act as a resource for academic support, mentoring and a critical bridge to community resources related to basic needs.
Unfortunately, we know that the north side of Milwaukee has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, with 70 percent of deaths coming from within the African American community. For twenty years, Neu-Life has helped families in and around Lindsay Heights navigate obstacles to their well-being while providing a safe haven for kids and teens. We’re committed more than ever to making sure Neu-Life families have the resources and support they need.
